Is NVR under- or over-valued?

Valuing NVR stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of NVR's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

NVR's P/E ratio

NVR's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 19x. In other words, NVR shares trade at around 19x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

NVR's PEG ratio

NVR's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.4487. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into NVR's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.


NVR's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$1.3 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a NVR's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting NVR shares

There are currently 41,645 NVR shares held short by investors – that's known as NVR's "short interest". This figure is 4.7% up from 39,780 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting NVR shares can be evaluated.

NVR's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

NVR's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of NVR shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of NVR shares traded daily (recently around 17797.008547009). NVR's SIR currently stands at 2.34. In other words for every 100,000 NVR shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2340 shares are currently held short.

However NVR's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of NVR shares, or, against the total number of tradable NVR shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case NVR's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 NVR shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0117% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable NVR shares, roughly 12 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against NVR.
